Persepolis 2.0

The animated feature Persepolis is one of my favorite blu ray movies. Writer and director Marjane Satrapi was a nine-year-old girl living in Tehran during the Islamic Revolution of 1979. The movie covers her struggle to deal with her country’s evolution from fundamentalism to religious extremism. It is a beautiful telling of an emotional life story.

A few days ago there appeared Persepolis 2.0, a mashup of the original graphic novel and the recent election protests in Iran written from the opposition viewpoint. What would it have looked like if the authors had supported the incumbent regime?

One thought on “Persepolis 2.0

  1. I don’t think it was necessarily written from an opposition point of view, just an account of what happened. The incumbent denies nothing in the report. If the writers supported the incumbent I dont think they would have written anything, that was the incumbent response, silence.
